Yes sir, Mr Hawk, you're on your way from bald by choice to bald by nature. Actually, I'm at about the same stage, although I'm 67yo!
Yep, just think how much easier guys have it when the entire top of their head is bald. If you think about it though, once I have the sides and back shaved, the top only takes another minute or two. I find the toughest spot is above/behind my ears. My hair grows right to the top of my ears!
